Cash For Clunkers Rules
Thats because your looking at rules posted on a site trying to sell cars and they just want to get you in the door. LOL

The CARS Act establishes four criteria for an eligible trade-in vehicle. The tradein
vehicle must:
(1) be in drivable condition;
(2) have been continuously insured, in accordance with State law, and
registered in the same owner’s name for the one-year period immediately
prior to the trade-in;
(3) have been manufactured not earlier than 25 years before the date of tradein
9
and, in the case of a category 3 vehicle, also be from a model year not
later than model year 2001; and

Re: Cash for Clunkers Question...

While we are talking about gas mileage lets have a little fun. What was the worse car you ever owned on MPG.

Mine 1980's Jimmy with full time 4x4 and a 454. It was hugh and could hold like ten people. I got around 7mpg going down hill. I paid $1,000 for the truck and just used it to go out in the woods 4 wheeling. If I got stuck it would take like 2 other trucks to get me out and I didn't care if I hit something. I never understood why guys would spend good money for a truck to just take the thing and run it through the mud.

1984 F-150 with a V8 and two gas tanks. It was all metal and was meant to be abused. We'd drive it around in the snow and ice, taking out stop signs, mailboxes, whatever else we could find. Just kept right on going. If it got 10 mpg, i'd be surprised.

I had a Lemans in the early 80's, I didn't care about gas mileage, cuz I was young and dumb, but if it got over 7mpg I would be amazed.

Nothing like those old trucks. I could take down a 3" thick tree with that Jimmy and just but a little ding in the bumper. Todays trucks it would do $2,000 to $4,000 worth of damage and now that I think about it throw in another $1,500 fir the air bag replacement.

I for got about my 98 olds which was bigger then a cad. It also had a 454 and I paid $75 for the car and drove it for about a year and sold it for $200. Only problem with the car is it had no reverse so you had to watch where you parked.

1971 SS 454 Chevelle . It actually had a 402 Cu In . engine , I rarely had the stereo on , I loved the sound of that damn car , then some bozo ran a light and CRASH . I used to put Cam 2 " pink Gas " in that car < 118 octane > , loved the smell , but got some dirty looks from what Im guessing were eco freaks
